The transition to B-ISDN from current networks represents a major technological discontinuity for the communications world. These discontinuities must be considered for the successful evolution of existing networks to broadband networks. The authors provide an overview of B-ISDN data transfer protocols and the services it will support. They discuss the effects of B-ISDN switching, network operations and management, signalling protocols and architectures, and networked computing.
